St Mary's Church, Putney


St Mary's Church is the site of the original Putney Debates, the first debates about the nature of democracy in England.

Here, over 370 years ago, with England emerging from Civil War, civilians and ordinary soldiers in the New Model Army met to discuss the constitution and the future of the country.

Join us at this historic venue for a unique re-staging of these debates for the post-Brexit age.
